February 12th, 2013

Episode 30 of 245 episodes

He might look like he’s just won a Duke of Edinburgh Award, but he’s got a mean streak a mile wide… In this special episode recorded live after a 30min performance, thrillingly talented “Slim Jimmy” Acaster reveals the difference between his real self and his onstage persona. We discuss sensitivity to the direction in which one’s audience want to be taken, and also explore how James overcame the need for truth in his material, by hiding under a bush in a dress.
